Zorn performs his unpredictable originals, abstract versions of some movie themes (including "A Shot in the Dark," "I Want to Live," "Chinatown," and "The James Bond Theme"), plus Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman." The stimulating music rewards repeated listenings by more open-minded listeners.
Listened to this without reading any of the other comments here and thought it was a perfectly fine sounding record.
Apparently some need this to be personally christened by zorn himself with whatever lies under his couch cushions mixed into the vinyl press for it to be worthy release. This is a very good sounding record. People get to be so obsessed with fidelty, mastering, source material I wonder are they even able to appreciate the music for what it is, music?
I had a chance to compare this 1972 release songs on B-side to the 90’s original Naked City - Torture Garden... and I’m sorry to say that the sound quality and volume level between these two releases really is quite notable. This 1972 release being more low on volume, more thin and flat sound, instruments cannot be heard as clearly separate as compared to 90’s release. I am not an audiophile, yet was also a little bit disappointed to hear such a huge sound difference.Anyway, this 1972 release is still great to have, since not too many other decently priced vinyl versions are available.
That's not necessarily true. Being an "audiophile" and being a music lover are not mutually exclusive. One can be picky about the pressings of the music and still love music as much as everyone else.
totally agree, i used to work in a recordstore having a large amount of so called audiophile stuff (which actually soundednot so great often) and i had quite a lot audiophile customers asking me: Do you have the new record on Mercury or Speakers Corner ? so it was never about musical content, if you´d asked them what music they prefer, they probablywould answer: all music on audiophile labels, no kidding. who wants to hear Tom Waits in audiophile quality (even ifWaits is a master of orchestration) ? that´s the problem with ECM, fine sound overall but it lacks atmosphere sometimes.
You don't know what a bootleg is. Everything on 1972 is licensed.
I'm totally agree with you. What's the point of having vinyl pressed from the digital source? why just dont get the original cd that you can find without a problem.
To be fair, 1972 are a notoriously shitty bootleg record label with a terrible track record. Because of the vinyl resurgence being in full-swing these days, most pressing plants are cutting corners with their press jobs to expedite the process of getting records out onto the shelves. These shortcuts are noticeable to vinyl enthusiasts and are unacceptable when considering the asking price a vinyl record goes for nowadays (usually about $25 + tax)Record labels are also notorious for using digital files as their source material for pressings, even when analog master tapes are known to exist for a certain recording. Again, more slapdash procedures. If you're just going to use a CD or an MP3 for a vinyl pressing, then what's the point of the pressing to begin with? Vinyl enthusiasts are obsessed with fidelity, mastering, source material, etc. because *that's* what makes the vinyl experience so heralded. They have a right to be upset when they're being gouged for shitty pressings of the kind 1972, Plain Recordings, 4 Men With Beards and Enjoy The Ride routinely produce.
Was expecting something horrible since it's a 1972 pressing...but it actually sounds pretty good
seems like the quality of this release is somewhat controversial. can anyone else chime in on how it sounds?
It's absolutely fine. I like it alot. Solid pressing. Don't know the mastering source and don't care.
To me it sounds like a darker version of the CD (and I have a good setup)...
Shitty sound. The CD sounds 100 times better! One more bad repress from this (bootleg?) label.
It doesn't sound horrible. I'm obviously not an heiress so I do not have an original to compare it to. I'm sure it's not the best, but what the hell else are you going to do? Spend 100+ dollars like a true fetishist moron? Yeah. No.
just like plain is licensed by WEA as well, still sub par quality from CD masters
Bad Sunny
Much better than the 2001 CD. Tonally similar to the original LP. This release is licensed by Elektra and manufactured by Rhino, so it's WEA all the way, not bootleg.
How about quality of this release? 1972 laber has rather bad reputation...
I've not heard any of their other releases, this sounds really good to me. I am not an audio fanatic though.
A repressing of this album is set to be released on the 1972 label on 8/26/2016
> And does it mean the older one will get cheaper ?No. I guess not. :(
So far, '1972' do not have a good reputation. Tzadik know nothing about it, so what source are they using? I'm not hopeful.
Source ? And does it mean the older one will get cheaper ?
how's the quality of this release compare to the original?
I just A/Bed this boot against the original CD, and they sound absolutely identical! Awesome, quiet pressing also. It very well could be sourced from that cd, so I guess the only other contender might be an original vinyl pressing in mint condition, if there is any difference at all...
The quality is fantastic. Too bad discogs doesn't allow bootlegs anymore...
I don't have listened to the original LP to compare it, but this reissue sounds great.
Funny thing is I always regard this as Naked City's 1st album, while by it's discography in the current form it's their Zero-est album!
It's because this was a solo Zorn project. As with many Zorn projects, the band he assembles becomes a unit and adopts the name of the first project for subsequent albums.
